Bob Bellerue: Radioactive Desire
Radioactive Desire is a work for free chamber music in feedback systems. The six performers work within simple structures for improvisation, and their sounds are fed into several different speaker systems which allow for feedback at appropriate levels—small woofers sitting on metal bowls and percussion instruments, guitar & keyboard amps, and a powerful but distant PA system. The physical presence of the instruments, and the idiomatic character of the speakers, provide a multidimensional expression of sound.
The work was created by Bob Bellerue, with a debt of gratitude to the performers: Jessica Pavone, Brandon Lopez, Luke Stewart, gabby fluke-mogul, and Ed Bear.
